I'm really not a big fan of Blue Oyster Cult. I just think that particular album, Secret Treaties, is a brilliantly produced (Todd Rundgren) masterpiece. It's very different from the "hits" you mentioned! The music is extremely dark and the themes somewhat disturbing. Almost, but not quite to the extent of being offensive. Perfect for Halloween!

2 hits? I thought they hard 3.

Don't Fear the Reaper
Godzilla
I'm Burning for You.

My favorite is Black Sabbath:

As a one time big BOC fan I'd have to say that Secret Treaties (excellent album though that is) is edged out by the dark undercurrents of Agents of Fortune in the sinister stakes (don't be put off by the fact that it's the (Don't Fear) The Reaper album). I still love tracks like The Revenge of Vera Gemini:

I was your victim
I was well deceived
Hell's built on regret
But I love your naked neck

I'm not familiar with that album, but I'm frightened already :|
